[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Did you know that it is more difficult to take a picture of a simple lark in flight, than of a griffon vulture? Well, I know it now :)
Anyway, managed to shoot this Crested lark (Galerida cristata) in flight, so enjoy!

An amazing shot. I know what you´re talking about. It is hard enough to get them into the binoculars focus - and a camera...
I especially like how you can recognize the spurs at the feet of the bird. In Germany there is a plant named "Lerchensporn" meaning spurs of the lark, comparing the blossom of the flower with the birds feet, i know why the plant was named after it.
Thanks for showing
